Aggregator head elected as LIXI chair

by Miklos Bolza18 Dec 2017
Independent lending standards body LIXI has announced the appointment of Stephen Moore as chairman of the board.

Moore, who is currently the CEO and director of Choice Aggregation Services, was elected to the board in a move supported by outgoing chair Lisa Claes.

“Stephen brings a wonderful breadth of experience to the role, which will benefit LIXI as we look to continue delivering value to our members and licensees.”

Moore has over 25 years of leadership experience in banking, finance broking and wealth management, including in distribution, product, and operations and strategy. He has worked with ING, MLC and NAB, eventually becoming CEO and director of Choice Aggregation Services in 2010.

In today’s current industry landscape, data has never been more important, Moore said.

“As our industry continues to evolve, LIXI can play a critical role in the evolution of data standards for improved data consistency and business efficiencies. It is my pleasure to be appointed chair and I look forward to supporting the industry.”

LIXI CEO Shane Rigby said the need for standardisation is now more important than ever, especially with the Combined Industry Forum’s reform package and the move towards open banking by the Treasury.

“This consistency and the improved efficiencies that LIXI enables ultimately leads to a better outcome for consumers,” he said.

“Stephen’s experience will help shape LIXI’s future, and I look forward to working with him to the benefit of all our members. I would also like to thank Lisa for her invaluable knowledge and guidance during her time as director and chair.”

    Hopefully, this means Choice will be working on the data issues between Podium and Applyonline. If the lenders are all using LIXI there is no reason why our CRM cant have 0 data errors when submitting loans to AOL. Will be on the lookout for these improvements in the future now that Stephen is LIXI chair.
